Screening of film, followed by discussion of mental illness in cinema

Cinema Medica, a program sponsored by the Health, Arts and Humanities Program at the University of Toronto, presents

Repulsion (dir. Roman Polanski, 1965)

A film screening followed by a discussion of mental illness in cinema.

Lauded as "one of the most complete depictions of schizophrenia breakdown" in film history, Roman Poloanski's Repulsion (1965) captures the gradual and violent mental disintegration of its central figure, Carole Ledoux (Catherine Deneuve). Carole appears withdrawn, exhibits increasingly bizarre behaviour, and experiences a series of sexually violent hallucinations.

This event and free and open to the public.  For further information, please contact Elysse Leonard.
